Finding a kindergarten for a multiracial family
www.antiracistparent.com www.antiracistparent.com
Teachers, administrators, and staff of a school district need cultural competency training. This is not a concern just for me as a parent of children of color, but a need for all the students served by the district.

It occurs to me that my we traded something important to get a suburban one-acre lot with a fenced in backyard. We traded the rhythm and texture of urban life, including the kind of multicultural existence that raises racial consciousness.

Adoption Fraud

Questioning Your Child's Origins
www.adoptivefamiliescircle.com www.adoptivefamiliescircle.com
Recently, in the New York Times, there was an article concerning the recent child trafficking scandals in China, titled, For Adoptive Parents, Questions Without Answers. It’s possible that children who were adopted by US families were actually abducted from their birth families and sold on the black market for children, which included orphanages.

Foster Care

Adoption and Long-Term Fostering: Themes from Research, SEAN MULLIGAN, Guardian Ad Litem Agency, Belfast, Northern Ireland  
www.aican.org www.aican.org
This paper has been prepared to explore the current literature on adoption
and long-term foster care. In a climate where adoption appears to be the model for attaining permanence for children who cannot be looked-after by birth parents, factors are considered to explain why some children’s needs may not be met in such an arrangement. The paper will identify the factors that need to be taken into consideration when determining the most appropriate permanent care arrangement for children. The issue of contact with birth families following a permanent change in care arrangements generally concluded that it was beneficial for older children; however, there remains some debate as to the benefit for all. These decisions have been based on many factors and each
case must be considered individually

A Day by Any Other Name
www.adoptivefamilies.com www.adoptivefamilies.com
Two years ago, on a breezy afternoon, three teary, blue-eyed people - my husband, my older daughter, and I - opened the door of an adoption administration building halfway around the world, and entered a room that was lined with polished wooden benches and filled with babies. I turned, and there was the face I’d memorized from three well-worn referral photos. I looked at her, then at a caretaker. The woman nodded. The nine-month-old looked up and stared at me with deep, chocolate eyes.

Labor of love or cheap labor? The plight of adjunct professors
www.onlinecolleges.net www.onlinecolleges.net
t’s a good thing that few entering academia expect to earn huge salaries and become incredibly wealthy because professorial jobs don’t usually come with rock star pay and benefits. Yet most newly graduated academics, after often spending nearly a decade in college, have the much more reasonable expectation of being able to earn a salary commensurate with their expertise or at least one that allows them to afford basic expenses like housing, food, and healthcare. Unfortunately, it’s increasingly common for even this very basic expectation not to be met.

Today, the majority of Ph.D. grads will find themselves working as adjunct faculty, not full-time professors. The shift towards adjuncts, who now make up almost 75% of instructional faculty, is perhaps one of the largest and most significant in the history of higher education, but so far, it doesn’t necessarily seem to be a change born out of a desire to improve education, but rather than to cut costs, as adjuncts are very often not particularly well-paid nor well-treated. How bad is it? Most adjuncts earn just $25,000 a year, less than half the average of $56,288 a new, full-time assistant professor will bring in according to the The College and University Professional Association for Human Resources.
